This small motel and cottages are the closest to the beach right on the Gulf of Mexico. We stayed in the motel and only had to step out of our door and onto the beach. A large screened in porch, 2 queen size beds, small kitchen made this a perfect place for the two of us. With only 33 units, the good size pool was never crowded(10 people at the most on Memorial day weekend) and most times we were the only ones in the pool. They provide almost everything you need. Plenty of towels for the pool, a laundry exchange, paper towels, dishwashing liquid, coffee filters, and toilet paper of course. No daily mail service if you are there for 7 days or less, but with the laundry exchange we didn't need it. It is an older place, but clean and perfect. We will stay there again. The staff was very nice and friendly.

Our motel room was very clean, the location is excellent. Literally at the edge of the beach. Management IS NOT VERY FRIENDLY and for me it made a lasting impression. The manager quoted one price, but the brochure from the CHAMBER OF COMMERCE said another. I had to negotiate a little, but did get the suggested price on the brochure.
This motel was definately adequate for the price.

We stayed here for two nights and were pleased with the location and facilities. The pool was great and we loved being able to walk right out onto the beach. We stayed in a motel room and were more than happy with the size - we had a full size fridge and cooker, etc too, which we weren't expecting!

We loved the screened balcony and the chairs on the beach. Great that you can help yourself to towels and bedding whenever you want. Note: there is no daily maid service here.

We just spent an amazing 5 days at the Shalimar and have not one complaint! The views were spectacular....breathtaking sunsets and the sound of the ocean at night was incredible! The place was clean and the management friendly! The pool was heated and we enjoyed every second we spent there!

Desiring a getaway from the Indiana cold, we decided to fly into Florida. We had been to Florida numerous times, but we were not familiar with the Ft. Myers area. Using this website as a guide, we decided to find out more about Sanibel. Learning that Ft. Myers can be more of a party area with high rises, and Sanibel was more laid back. We settled on Sanibel. Seeking an oceanfront or ocean view room at a reasonable price I figured would be next to impossible. Again this website came to my assistance. I found an accommodation that had almost all 5 stars from their evaluators. Trusting their opinions, I called and talked to Sara at Shalimar. She was courteous and willing to assist me with my questions. Shalimar is clean, pleasantly furnished, and has beautiful sunsets. It is a great shelling area offering its own private beach. We will be back!!!!
